Window Cushions

Crypton fabric is a great choice for window seat cushions!


 Crypton is a name for a patented technology for the treatment of fabric to prevent it from becoming stained and to resist and inhibit the growth of bacteria. It is commonly used in the upholstery industry, and is popularly used in hotels and on cruise ships.

This is a fabric that stands up to life's messes and is still  touchable and beautiful!

 Crypton is a homegrown, United States-based company headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, a city known for its long history of hard work and innovation.

Custom Banco

For three centuries, from the Spanish Colonial period to the present day, benches have provided handsome, practical seating in countless homes and churches. 
Early New Mexican homes were sparsely furnished with only a few movable pieces supplementing adobe built-ins. Most likely, bancos were placed against the walls, leaving the center of the room empty.

This Blue Velvet gives the room a "pop" of color.

Ultra Suede Retro Chair....

This old retro style Swivel Rocker has been transformed!
Using a ribbed Micro-fiber suede for the body and a solid longer cut Ultra Suede for the buttons and welt!


In 1970, Toray Industries scientist Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto invented the world's first microfiber. A few months later, his colleague Dr. Toyohiko Hikota succeeded in developing a process that would transform these microfibers into an amazing new fabric: Ultrasuede--an ultra-microfiber often used as a synthetic substitute for leather or suede. 
It's used in automobiles, interior furnishings and more. The composition of Ultrasuede ranges from 80% non-woven polyester and 20% non-fibrous polyurethane to 65% polyester and 35% polyurethane.

This is the little foot-stool that we upholstered to match the chair!

Patio Chairs

Can you believe that these chairs used to be woven with wicker?
 Now we turned them into a sling style with Sunbrella fabric to hold up to the weather elements!
Great way to salvage outdoor furniture!
